Eleven Forty Nine Restaurant today announced that they will permanently close due to COVID-19.

“Sadly, we are announcing that due to the unfortunate Covid -19 crisis, the owners of Eleven Forty-Nine Restaurant have made the difficult decision to close permanently” the restaurant posted on Facebook on Monday.

The restaurant, located at 1149 Division Street in Warwick, has been closed since mid-March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It has been our sincere honor to serve our patrons for the last thirteen years, we have enjoyed sharing so many special occasions and life events with you,” the restaurant wrote.

“The owners and management thank you and appreciate your patronage. We wish to give a special thank you to all our staff members who have worked so hard throughout the years, you have made us proud and served with care! Be safe and well,” the restaurant concluded.

Restaurants in Rhode Island have been restricted to just take-out and delivery service since March 16th, due to COVID-19. Beginning today restaurants are permitted to allow limited outdoor dining with restrictions. Governor Raimondo has not yet announced when restaurants will be able to allow indoor dining.

Earlier this month, Griswold’s Tavern in Newport announced that they would be permanently closing due to COVID-19.
